Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija), Mostar
(4.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija) was designed and built as a test model for the construction of the bigger and more famous Old Bridge. The Turks built the model to see whether a bridge with such a semicircular stone arch could withstand loads. The bridge was mentioned for the first time in the endowment of a wealthy merchant, Cejvan Cehaja, in 1558, which means that it was built at least eight years before the Old Bridge. Climb the stone steps on either side of the bridge and walk over its cobblestoned path. The arch is a perfect semicircle measuring 8.56 m (28 ft) wide and 4.15 m (13.6 ft) tall. Floods destroyed the bridge in 2001, but it was rebuilt on the initiative of UNESCO. Use our Mostar family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija) and other attractions in Mostar.

  • 科里瓦娃石拱桥,比老桥年代更早。横跨在河上,方便两岸的居民往来进出。午后的阳光,和煦温暖,几只猫,闲散悠闲,愿小城永远和平,安宁。 
  • A miniature version of it famous younger sibling. Of equal interest to me is all the water works around this area - you can see how there was an industry in the past powered by the chaneled water. 
  • It is a small stone takes on the West side of Mostar, the Neretva River tributaries. What fraction of Mostar-like scale. Head full of tourists than helpful here is quiet atmosphere. Views around clean stone buildings and more, taste. However, one of care compared to the mainstream or turbid stream, on the riverbank and scattered trash or was missed. I like sons of atmosphere compared to the information most area restaurants.

  • This is the best hotel in Mostar. Being located not only in the most magical spot of the Old part of the City of Mostar overlooking the old town architecture including the small bridge Kriva Cuprija as well as the river Rado bolja. It has amazing rooms with top of the line bathrooms and the service is amazing. Has wifi in the rooms, lcd tv's, a/c or heat, and a balcony overlooking the old town. I have been in the hotel twice and is the only hotel I would choose when visiting Mostar not only because of its location which you can't get anywhere else but also the cleanliness and the service.
  • Lovely stuff ... historic place ... perfect location
  • Rooms not clean enough, details, car was park on wrong place blocking other people All together 2 stars
  • Excellent apartment with very friendly staff. Would highly recommend! Right next to the old bridge and with free parking and modern rooms.
  • Fin hotele u blizini starog grada
